The moment fans have been waiting for is almost here: Lorde on SNL! The “Royals” hit maker will be returning to sing a live set on Saturday Night Live, on Saturday March 11.

Lorde’s Instagram News

Lorde’s Billboard top charting days are far from over and Billboard didn’t hesitate to announce that the 20-year-old New Zealand native is appearing on SNL this weekend! And that’s not all: they’re also hoping that Lorde’s SNL musical guest return means a new song or album! Could Lorde be working on new music?

The post was captioned “Lorde playing SNL next month can only mean one thing…new music is on the way (we hope).”

Fans in the comments section agreed with the post and now everyone’s expectations are up, in anticipation for Lorde’s next hit.



Where’s Lorde’s New Music?

Aside from a scheduled SNL return and a 2017 festival appearance, fans want to know what else Lorde could be working on. She hasn’t released an album since her 2013 hit, Pure Heroine and fans are itching for more! Last year, Lorde teased the possibility of a second album in a Facebook post and discussed her coming of age in an emotional message.

“I’m not a kid any more, and more and more I’m realizing that the weirdness of those Mylar balloons is going to be okay,” she wrote. “Writing ‘Pure Heroine’ was my way of enshrining our teenage glory, putting it up in lights forever so that part of me never dies, and this record – well, this one is about what comes next.”

There’s no word or exact confirmation on Lorde’s return to music, but a cameo on SNL is a good start, maybe even a sign for others. This is the Year of Music after all, and the fans would hate for Lorde to miss out!
